Constipation? That's so hard!


I'm being tested for lyme disease and for Lou Gehrig's disease....


Yikes Gerald, can things get any worse for you ? Sorry to hear this. You've sure got enough on your plate with your other health issues. Wishing the best for you my friend.

I may not post it every day but your wife and you are in my thoughts on a daily base.. After all that has kicked my arse in the past while.. I truly understand what a lot of yall are going through..   I was miss diagnosed 2 1/2 years ago.. found out 6 months ago that i have MS. Now they think i have more then just MS. I have to believe in my heart what ever i have just makes me stronger willed to be here for my son.. I love my wife but she can life with out me, but our 6 month old son needs me in his life and i need him.. What ever is beating me down can get the halibit outta the way cause i'm nott giving up..

I was making a funny, not trying to pry into your business. That sounds like a rough row.....   I'll pray for you and your family and your care givers.

TG, Sorry to hear all the bad luck, My Prayers are with you. On the smoker, I bought one of those combination grill that has a smoker box around $380.00 here. I love the Gas and charcoal sides, but haven't had anything good turn out with the smoker. I tried Brisquet several times, and a rack of pork ribs this weekend. The Chicken and Burgers went over great, most of the pork ribs were de-boned and given to the dogs.

Looks like i will be buying a smoker.. The 32 inch casing i was going to use for my smoker got turned into two fire pits. The fella wanted one for his yard at home and one for his lake lot. He offered me a stupid amount of money so now i will buy a more sensible sized smoker... Some day i will buy the monster that i dream of.. For now.. i will buy one..

I think....... hmmm, I time the chicken and burgers with a couple cans of beer, works well, I think the smoker requires too much beer.

Yea, the cook. :wallbanging:

Do any of you folks use a cold smoker? The one where the fire is separate from the meat?

I do sort of cold smoking for cheese. I use a pan of ice under the cheese to keep the temps down.

Does it have to be portable?  Our Tennesee connection (DIL's Dad) uses a smoker made out of cinder blocks..  It takes a bit of work to use as you need to burn the wood in an old 55 gallon drum with a screen above a cut out area in the bottom..  You transfer the ashes to the bottom of the cinder block smoker and cover the thing up with a hunk of metal to keep in the smoke/heat..   It works great I tell ya!!  The chicken & ribs he smoked with hickory had a deee-licious taste to it!  I gotta get back down there for more sometime!! :worshippy1:
